Question

Do you have to identify yourself?

Answer

‚ÄčNo. You may request confidentiality or anonymity.

You have two options when you request your identity remain confidential:

  • Release your identity to the Inspector General with the understanding that it will not be released to the investigator.
  • Identify yourself with the understanding that only the Inspector General and the investigator will know who you are.

If you request confidentiality, we will make every effort to protect your identity from disclosure; however, we cannot guarantee confidentiality since disclosure may be required during the investigation or in the course of corrective action.

If you file your complaint anonymously, we will not know who you are.  As such, we will not be able to contact you to request additional information or to give you the results of the investigation.

You may consider establishing an e-mail account using an internet service provider to submit an anonymous complaint; however, we will not respond to anonymous complaints submitted in this way since we have no way of verifying who you are.
